Hank, Love your site; this is my first post but I have checked it daily for over a year.
I followed these instructions for elderberry wine from your book last year and made my first three gallons of wine. I bottled it a month ago and had a glass last night; WONDERFUL!
At this moment I have over forty gallons of various wines under airlock. I want to say thank you for introducing me to this wonderful hobby/lifestyle.

Well, I found your website about a month too late, but I’ll hold onto it for next year. I just winged it with much less science involved. I had 3 gallons, followed a basic recipe and its resting now (already had one jar burst, so it’s all been transferred to two glass gallon jars) and not sure if I should just leave it alone and risk the end result?? I’m thinking it’ll either work okay or taste horrible, but is there any “danger” in drinking this down the road? Also, ideas for purchasing the additives, etc that were in your fabulous article would be helpful.
